London City Airport is a single-runway airport that serves London’s financial district. It is sometimes referred to as a STOLport, meaning that the airlines serving the airport operate on a Short Take Off and Landing basis.
Located on a former Docklands site, flights to London City Airport are usually booked by business people looking to gain quick access to the major financial district of Canary Wharf. However, the number of leisure travellers using London City Airport is increasing every year – especially during ski season, when flights to Zurich, Geneva and Milan are especially popular.
The airport is currently in the process of expanding and upgrading its terminal and runway facilities, and aims to be able to handle eight million passengers per year by 2030. London City Airport is just 3km (2 miles) from the site of the 2012 Olympic Games – a fact which is sure to see its passenger traffic increase.
Note that London City Airport is not open 24 hours a day and keeps the following schedule: Monday to Friday from 5am to 10pm, Saturday from 5am to 1pm, and Sunday from 11am to 10:20pm.
